The NFL offseason is only a few weeks old, and the coaching carousel finally stopped spinning. (Unless you're a Browns fan, then it feels like one of those spin-till-you-puke kind of rides. Sorry Cleveland!) In the second biggest development of the offseason, one of the most well-known teams in the league is shaking things up. According to Yahoo Sports, among many other media outlets, CBS is changing its lineup of talking hairdos for pregame coverage. Ousted are Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe. Freshly retired, and soon-to-be Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez steps in as the replacement. It is a good get for CBS, as Gonzalez has more recognition with the younger crowd. And he can form sentences much more clearly than Sharpe, whose brash and boisterous delivery was a turnoff for many viewers. Speculation has already begun regarding the landing spots of Sharpe and Marino. Sharpe should land softly in a gig similar to his role at CBS. Although his style was stale at CBS, ESPN might be a likely and easy choice for Sharpe. The Mothership has a stable of old athletes who are loud and usually uninformed, so the transition should be seamless. As far as Marino, he has a few more options at his disposal. Surely another network could find a spot at its over-sized anchor desk for the former QB. A reprisal of his senior vice president position with his former team the Miami Dolphins is another possibility. That way he could be outshined again by quarterback contemporary John Elway, who has led the Denver Broncos to much success over his tenure. My choice for Marino is a return to his acting days.
